Chaffee to exhibit state art collection

RUTLAND - The Chaffee Art Center will host the Art of Vermont from Nov. 20 through Dec. 31. The Art of Vermont is a sampling of the state art collection. It will open on November 20 with a reception from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Chaffee Art Center.

The Vermont Arts Council and Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services have organized a traveling exhibit to share Vermont's substantial art collection with every part of the state. The exhibit represents a small sampling of works collected over a century and a half, including those commissioned through the 20-year-old Art in State Buildings Program.

Both endeavors reveal the breadth of artistic quality in this collection, all owned by the people of Vermont.
